Institute for Energy Process Engineering and Fuel Technology (IEVB-Institute) at the Clausthal University of Technology is based on two professorships; the chair for Process Energy and Energy Management (R. Weber) and the chair for Technical Thermodynamics and Fuel Technology (R. Scholz). The Institute focuses on the development and optimization of environmentally friendly processes that require conversion and transfer of energy. The strategy of the IEVB combines fundamental and applied research methods with 30% and 70% split, respectively.

The Institute possesses a variety of lab-scale and semi-industrial scale research rigs as well as a state-of-the-art Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) lab. Mathematical modelling of industrial processes is an essential part of the IEVB-Institute’s activities and, to this end, Power Generating, Glass Making and Steel-Making industries stay in focus. In the context of this proposal the recent scientific cooperation with KIT in the field of gasification of low grade fuels is of a particular importance.
